The granddaughter of author and women's rights supporter Lady Jane Strachey, Elinor Rendel worked as secretary to Cambridge University's Women's Suffrage Society, and, from 1909 to 1912, for the National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies. She later was a physician, working in Serbia during World War I, and in private practice, treating Virginia Woolf, among others. Between September 1908 and March 1909 she traveled to the United States with fellow suffragettes Mary Berenson (1864-1945) and her daughters Ray (1887-1940) and Karin Costelloe, daughters from Berenson's first marriage. Mary Berenson was the wife of art historian Bernard Berenson and the group had introductions to the highest echelons of American society.
